In some cases, a major feature is the presence of a lentiginous pattern of growth alternating with a nested one [8-10]. Melanocytes are aligned in single units along the junction with skip areas of irregular distribution. In all, these junctional lesions fulfill most criteria for a diagnosis of melanoma despite their striking nested pattern Atypical Spitzoid tumors exhibit some of the morphological features of stereotypical Spitz nevus, and some of melanoma simulating Spitz nevus (Spitzoid melanoma), often defying clear-cut classification into either category.

The conventional system has divided melanocytic naevi according to history (congenital or acquired) and histopathology (junctional, compound and dermal location of melanocytes).However clinical diagnosis is often imprecise The ratios between the number of melanocytes and the total number of cell nuclei within these sub-layers are computed. To capture nuclear morphologies, five morphological features including area, perimeter, eccentricity, equivalent diameter and ellipticity are computed from each nucleus

Chapter 5: Histological Features and Surface Morphology of the Tongue 137 The epithelium of the ventrum linguae was similar in composition to that of the dorsum except for the obvious absence of melanocytes (Figs. 5.10, 5.12) In contrast with these nevus-like features, these neoplasms display additional details which are incompatible with a diagnosis of junctional nevus. These include areas of lentiginous array with focal pagetoid spread of melanocytes above the junction; marked cytological atypia, such as nuclear enlargement, hyperchromasia, nuclear membrane. Dorris was the first to point to the origin of melanocytes from the neural crest in birds.In the trunk of avian embryos, the first wave of neural crest cells migrate ventrally between the neural tube and the somite and give rise to neurons or glial cells of the peripheral nervous system (Le Douarin and Teillet,1973,1974).After 24 h, with the cessation of ventral migration, the onset of.

Furthermore, melanoma may arise in the same zone of a previous spitzoid nevus, in which some residual benign melanocytes can be mixed with malignant ones. If this process is at the initial stage, the majority of melanocytes will show the morphological features of those found in a benign nevus, and only few of them exhibit malignant. In healthy SK, melanocytes are found in the dermis in great quantity throughout the whole skin.

Rhododenol (RD), a whitening cosmetic ingredient, was withdrawn from the market due to RD-induced leukoderma (RIL). While many attempts have been made to clarify the mechanism underlying RIL, RIL has not been fully understood yet. Indeed, affected subjects showed uneven skin pigmentation, but the features are different from vitiligo, a skin hypopigmentary disorder, alluding to events more. The morphological features of feathers are characteristics that aid in phylogenetic identification (Sumida and Brochu, 2000; Lovette and Fitzpatrick, 2016). Thus, the structure of feathers, including the barbules and the associated barbicels, is considered a fingerprint that can be used to distinguish avian species (Feo et al., 2015 ) Morphological features of naevoid melanoma: results of a multicentre study of the International Dermoscopy Society C.

Automated analysis and diagnosis of skin melanoma on whole

Melanocytes are neural crest derived cells that are found in the stratum basale of the epidermis, hair follicles, mucosal surfaces, Currently, many morphological features are reported according to the College of American Pathology (CAP) cancer summaries including mitotic rate, microsatellitosis, regression, lymphovascular. Importantly, it also correctly identified nevus melanocytes as non-proliferative—and other melanocytes as prolifer- ative—in agreement with Figure 1E-F. Interestingly, the relatively high expression of proliferation- associated genes in non-nevus, hair follicle melanocytes (Mel 3) when compared with nevus Ruiz-Vega et al. eLife 2020;9:e61026 of studying the visceral melanocytes has been emphasized in recent studies (7, 8). Therefore our aim has been to define the various properties of the hepatic melano-cytes of Amphiuma. Earlier studies (7, 9) have described some of the morphological and the biochemical features of these cells. The present paper deals with an interest In humans, an increase of skin pigmentation over the basal constitutive level is called tanning, and this is physiologically stimulated by UV-R. UV-induced skin darkening involves an increase in the number of mela-nocytes as well as stimulation of melanin synthesis and melanocyte dendricity, a crucial morphological feature required for melanin. The morphological features we observed in melanocytes of aging and graying hair follicles further support this notion. Such features have been described before in melanocytes under oxidative stress for example in culture or in vitiligo (6, 44, 45)

Neither acral lentiginous nor lentigo maligna melanoma was included. Tumors with an ambiguous morphological diagnosis of DPN were selected when nests of dermal pigmented epithelioid melanocytes suggested a potential diagnosis of DPN without all the usual morphological features including atypia or potential malignancy Intersecting fascicular growth of fusiform melanocytes was seen in all but one ALK-positive tumor (27 of 28 or 96.4%), whereas it was infrequent in NTRK1-positive tumors (5 of 20 or 25.0%) and tumors negative for both ALK and NTRK1 (96.4% vs 25.0% vs 8.7%, P .0027). There was a trend toward ALK-positive tumors being amelanotic compared with.

All MITF-positive cells in the basal layer possessed the morphological features of melanocytes. Some cells that were identified as melanocytes did not stain for MITF. In particular, their specific location at the basement membrane and lack of desmosomes unequivocally distinguished them from adjacent keratinocytes The evaluation of the dermoscopic and confocal features was performed in blind to the final histopathological diagnosis that was obtained in all cases. Results Dermoscopically, the repigmentation in recurrent naevi (three patients) was confined within the scar while it extended beyond the scar in melanomas The morphological variability of melanocytic lesions is exhibited by both architectural and cytological variations.6, 8 Particular difficulty arises when melanocytes express cytomorphological features that create uncertainty about the cell of origin, as may be seen with spindled melanocytic lesions.7, 9 This difficulty is compounded when the.

Vitiligo is a common skin disorder that manifests as whitish macules. There is no special geographic or sex predilection. Vitiligo is a multifactorial disorder. The various theories proposed include neutral theory, autoimmune theory, zinc-α2-glycoprotein theory, viral infection, intrinsic theory and melanocytorrhagy theory. However, the currently favored opinion is that there is a convergence. Abstract Solanum diphyllum L. is a native plant to Mexico and Central America, and distributed in many places around the world. Currently escaped from cultivation as an ornamental plant and grows wildly as a naturalized exotic plant in some places i Background. Human dermal papilla (DP) cells and melanocytes (hMel) are central players in hair growth and pigmentation, respectively. In hair follicles (HFs), oxygen (O 2) levels average 5%, being coupled with the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), necessary to promote hair growth.. Materials and Method

This paper proposes a novel technique for the detection of melanocytes in HE images of the epidermis, based on the melanocyte color features, in the HSI color domain. Initially, an effective soft morphological filter is applied to the HE images in the HSI color domain to remove noise Skin disease - Skin disease - Appearance: Skin diseases in which there is an overproduction of epidermal cells or a disorganization of their differentiation often show scaling. Simple benign hyperplasia (overgrowth) of the epidermis such as is commonly seen in infantile eczema often appears as lichenification, a term used to describe a thickening of the epidermis in which the normal surface. Melanosomes are organelles that produce and store melanin, a widespread biological pigment with a unique suite of properties including high refractive index, semiconducting capabilities, material stiffness, and high fossilization potential. They are involved in numerous critical biological functions in organisms across the tree of life The upper and lower lips are referred to as the Labium superius oris and Labium inferius oris, respectively. The juncture where the lips meet the surrounding skin of the mouth area is the vermilion border, and the typically reddish area within the borders is called the vermilion zone. The vermilion border of the upper lip is known as the cupid's bow We propose a snapshot hyperspectral imaging system and methods for skin morphological feature analysis and real-time monitoring of skin activities. The analysis method includes a strategy using weighted subtractions between sub-channel images to extract absorption information due to specific chromophores within skin tissue, for example hemoglobin and melanin

There are some unique features that distinguish malignant melanoma from benign melanoma. These features are selected for classification purpose. The final result of features extraction task is a vector of features. Three types of feature are extracted; color, shape, and texture. 2.1.3.1 Color Features Congenital-like features can be commonly detected within the dermal component of these naevi, namely, small naevus cells in the reticular dermis (and sometimes in the subcutis) with extension between the collagen bundles and around nerves, vessels and adnexa. Compound lesions may contain larger intraepidermal melanocytes, with pagetoid.

Electron microscopes have emerged as a powerful tool for the characterization of a wide range of materials. Their versatility and extremely high spatial resolution render them a very valuable tool for many applications. The two main types of electron microscopes are the transmission electron microscope (TEM) and the scanning electron microscope (SEM) pathological features of melanomas. KeY woRDS: melanoma, clinical characteristics, histopathological characteristics, dermatoscopy IntRoDUCtIon Melanoma is a malignant tumor which evolves from melanocytes and is one of the most aggressive malignant tumors of the skin and mucosa. It is char-acterized by a high tendency of early lymphatic an PATHOLOGIC FEATURES On histological examination, the first 6 lesions showed morphological features that were almost superimposable; they were small, well defined, and all made up of a junctional and a dermal component. The junctional component consisted of large atypical pigmented melanocytes with focal pagetoid spread (Fig. 1, top) We compared sun exposure and melasma features in these individuals. The mean (standard deviation) Melasma Area Severity Index scores for sun exposure of less than 2 h, 2-5 h and more than 5 h was 12.2 (6.1), 10.7 (6.8) and 8.0 (4.4), respectively; this difference was not statistically significant (P = 0.32).Most individuals with dermal melasma reported sun exposure for less than 2 h (63%.

The G protein-coupled MC1R is expressed in melanocytes and has a pivotal role in human skin pigmentation, with reduced function in human genetic variants exhibiting a red hair phenotype and increased melanoma predisposition. Beyond its role in pigmentation, MC1R is increasingly recognized as promoting UV-induced DNA damage repair. Consequently, there is mounting interest in targeting MC1R for. for comparing the histopathological features of RIL and vitiligo. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used to compare the differences between the numbers of melanocytes in the lesional and perilesional skin with both diseases.

Patients usually present with features of both glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid deficiency. The predominant symptoms vary depending on the duration of disease. Patients may present with clinical features of chronic Addison disease or in acute addisonian crisis precipitated by stress factors such as infection, trauma, surgery, vomiting, diarrhea, or noncompliance with replacement steroids Gene mutations influencing melanocytes also impact on physiological and behavioural functions. In this study, we investigated their association with four different coat colours in the Pura Raza Español (PRE) horse using morphological traits and molecular datasets. Four different subpopulations were identified according to individual coat colour: grey, bay, chestnut and black obtained the primary culture of melanocytes. Purity culture of melanocytes After second or third pure passage, we can obtain relative pure melanocytes (Figure 3A).

All Bcl-2-positive cells exhibited the morphological characteristics of melanocytes. In group 1, the number of Bcl-2-positive cells in unexposed skin was estimated to be 14.4 ± 0.7 cells/mm. At 1 week of radiotherapy, there was a gradual increase in the number of Bcl-2-positive cells, up to 21.5 ± 1.3 cells/mm over the dose range 0.05-1.08. Like melanocytes from M-melanoma 1 and from skin, these cells also contain fine cytoplasmic filaments. Marked folds are a conspicuous feature of the surface of these cells.

Spitz tumors are a group of melanocytic neoplasms with distinct morphological features that tend to affect young individuals. Distinguishing benign from malignant Spitz tumors can be challenging, but cytogenetic and molecular tests have contributed to improvements in diagnostic accuracy. Spitz tumors harbor diverse genetic alterations, including mutations in HRAS, loss of BAP1, or kinase. Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis typically presents as smooth pale ( hypopigmented) or white (depigmented) macules 2-5mm (range up to 1.5cm) in diameter most commonly on the sun-exposed aspects of the forearms, shins, and V of chest. Lesions are usually multiple and asymptomatic. Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis Clinical features The clinical features of the patients harboring the tumors are listed in Table 1. The male to female sex ratio was 3M:3F and ages at diagnosis ranged from 18 to 85 y/o (median, 44 y/o). Sites of involvement were limbs, trunk and ear. Maximum diameters ranged from 4 to 11 mm (median, 6 mm)

Communication between the nervous system and epidermal melanocytes has been suspected on the basis of their common embryologic origin and apparent parallel involvement in several disease processes, but never proven. In this study, confocal microscopic analysis of human skin sections stained with antibodies specific for melanocytes and nerve fibers showed intraepidermal nerve endings in contact. Ultraviolet light (UV) is an important risk factor for cutaneous basal cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and cutaneous melanoma of the skin. These cancers most commonly affect persons with fair skin and blue eyes who sunburn rather than suntan. However, each of these cancers appears to be associated with a different pattern of UV exposure and to be mediated by different. Here we will review the pathologic features, including its growth phases, major histopathologic subtypes, and rare variants, and the genetic and molecular characterization of cutaneous melanoma [ 2 ]. Other aspects of melanoma, including risk factors, clinical presentation and diagnosis, staging, and management, are discussed elsewhere
